If you love all things mint, this Chocolate Mint Rocky Road recipe is definitely for you!!
I got the idea for this recipe awhile ago when talking to a friend about what ingredients we would include in our ultimate Rocky Road recipe (mine include Tim Tams and Fantales by the way!!) and when she rattled off a list of all things choc mint, I knew I had to put the recipe together for her.
However life soon got in the way (isn’t it funny how that happens?!) but now that I’m three months into life with 3 kids, I’m finding things have settled down quite a bit and I’ve got just a little more time to experiment in the kitchen.
While I’ve included ALL of the ingredients my friend suggested, when I spotted Mint Maltesers at the supermarket last week, I knew I just had to also include them.
This Chocolate Mint Rocky Road truly is a dream come true for all mint lovers, and my husband and sister in law who is currently visiting us were more than happy to be my taste testers, and they both gave it a big thumbs up.
